Virginia

Well i wasn't sure if we ever actually would but after a 4 day very long car ride we MADE it!! we arrived at our place in Midlothian VA at around 3 am EST on Saturday morning and are finally finishing getting settled. it has been a really fun trip actually, we are extremely blessed with kids who don't mind traveling, i guess if thats not Heavenly Fathers way of letting us know we are doing the best thing for us right now i don't know what is :) we stayed the night in Cheyenne WY, Omaha NE (which was great the kids and Jason all threw up that night within 2 hours of eachother, fun fun) and Mt Vernon IL. We drove through St Louis MO right as it was getting dusky and it was so beautiful, the highway goes right down past the temple and the arch, we went over both the Missouri and Mississippi rivers and Evie was so impressed she had to call both her grandma's and tell them about  the huge rivers she had just seen. it was a great drive beautiful scenery, but nothing compares with Midlothian. It literally appears out of the forest, Jason and the kids can walk 100 yards from our apartment and be on a hike, and is just surrounded by gorgeous green everywhere. we got a taste yesterday of what jason will be knocking in yesterday, first it was 95 degrees and humid as "you know where" and then 3 hours later it was freezing and dumping rain like you wouldn't believe. the thunder and lightning were amazing!!!! any ways now my kids need naps and so do i!!!!! i will post pics when i get them developed cause no more digi cam for me. :(
